Evidence Mounts of a Manufactured Border Crisis
Accuracy In Media ^ | July 17 2014 | Roger Aronoff

Posted on 07/17/2014 12:49:20 PM PDT by PoloSec

The situation at America’s southern border is a “manufactured crisis,” one perpetuated—if not started—by the Obama administration. After all, the administration put out an ad in January 2014 asking for contractors to handle an influx of 65,000 children. “The surge to 60,000 or so children seen this year was said to catch many off guard, especially since just 6,500 children entered the U.S. as early as 2011,” reported Pete Kasperowicz for The Blaze. “But [Republican Representative Jeff] Sessions [R-AL] said the advertisement showed that the administration knew the surge would happen.” And in reality, the 60,000 children represent only about 20 percent of the total illegal immigrants who have come into this country since April.

In addition, a series of new revelations this week further demolish the administration’s narrative about whether or not this is, indeed, a manufactured crisis, and if it is being handled responsibly. For example, thanks to a report by Breitbart News, we learned that the Obama administration is using organizations to find prospective foster homes for some of the unaccompanied children coming across the border, and offering to pay the foster parents more than $6,000 per month, tax free, to house them. What could possibly go wrong?

If that doesn’t work out, the federal government has plans for temporary housing at a Texas resort, with tennis courts, swimming pools, a steam room and sauna, all for the bargain rate of $50 million a year. At least they did until the public became aware of it, at which time they thought better of it. As Washington, D.C. radio talk-show host Chris Plante said, maybe they should have thought to offer that first to homeless or disabled vets. Did anyone consider that?

Breitbart also disclosed material in a leaked report from the El Paso Intelligence Center,

looks like “the regime” underestimated the effectiveness of the lure the Obamanation cast into Central America.

Obama miscalculated.

He did engineer this! BUT he thought the sight of thousands of children at the border with dead childrens bodies being found in the desert would move the debate in the democrats direction.

Luckily for us, it did just the opposite, and now a near super majority want us to close the border and for us to deport ASAP all these illegals.

Poor Obama, he can't even orchestrate a crisis properly!

Of course it’s manufactured. It springs from the same mentality as Fast and Furious that led to shipping weapons to cartels so that the murder rate in Mexico would support the administration’s assertions; from the same mentality that locked the American populace out of their own national parks and monuments in a spiteful effort to win a budget standoff. It is more of Obama’s bolshevik community disruptor Alinsky agitprop.

No doubt this will make that resort owner's year and probably a very rich man --

America, what a country!!!

I guess the administration thinks it’s OK for these girls to be raped “for the cause” - as long as they don’t get pregnant.

What a Satanic bunch of evil bastards.

Yup. This really backfired. I remember thinking to myself earlier this week that the “left” always manages to misjudge the strength of their hand and assume that a majority of Americans think and feel as they do. They forget that they are only about 20-25% of the country’s population.

The owner of The Blaze is contributing to making it more attractive for more illegals to come on over.

As usual, we don't know for sure if Obama wants a failure or whether his plans perpetually backfire.

The problem in the border is not with the number of illegals being caught. The problem is that between new federal laws granting more legal recourse to children, and administration policies towards "Other than Mexicans" the system lacks throughput and is bogged down.

Once we realize what the problem is, then the solution becomes more clear. This is wear the President and the Democrats show tip their hands. The obvious solution is to mobilize National Guard units in certain categories. First would Spanish speakers and MPs to do the processing, and incarceration. I don't mention Civil Affairs because they have had a fairly high tempo over the last 12 years. Lakota units with EO/IR kits would be helpful for filling the gaps in air coverage. All of this would allow BP agents to go back out into the field.

Someone with better computer skills better than me could probably find the airline charters, railroad charters, and bus charters for bringing the ‘chilluns’ from Guatemala, El Salvadore, East Ibushka, etc. to Laredo, Texas. This wasn’t spontaneous.

That would be interesting to see-but most coyotes have their own vans and trucks, and move freely over the borders of Mexico and Central America because they have extensive networks for human trafficking and ties with narcos. Most of the kids sent alone came with those coyotes, who were paid by their stupid parents-even so, they should still be sent back to them-right now...

No, the owner of The Blaze is not ‘making it attractive’ to come here. He is trying to deal with people who need help. Glenn Beck wants them deported as well. But he feels there is a duty to help people who may need food or clothing, however they got here.

Whether you like him or not, he is actually trying to do the right thing.

Beck has turned into a dilettante-he claims he is donating all that stuff to church groups, as he preaches sympathy and caring-but I don’t see him offering to let any of those kiddies stay at HIS fancy home with HIS kids-charity begins at home, as long as it isn’t his home...

I disagree-he is not going to encourage any deportation by what he is doing-the fed can corrupt anything, and is already throwing money at faith based groups to get them to shelter the illegals-kids and adults-and stave off their deportation.

A plan to house hundreds of illegal immigrant children at a multimillion-dollar hotel complex in Texas was scuttled after the prospect of taxpayers footing the bill for luxury lodging proved too much of a public relations obstacle.

BCFS, previously known as Baptist Child and Family Services, which has a contract with the Department of Health and Human Services to run camps at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio and Fort Sill in Oklahoma, had a deal to buy the Palm Aire Hotel in Weslaco, Texas, for $3.8 million. The hotel was built in the 1980s and includes three swimming pools, tennis courts and an exercise room.

We need to assign a mascot to Obama’s problem with unexpected consequences of which there seem to be so many one can hardly keep track of them.

We need something like a Wile E. Coyote with a superimposed stylized Obama face. Perhaps just highlights of Obama’s features superimposed such as eyes, ears, and head scars, or the like.

Perhaps we could make it an official Obama mascot similar to his own egotistical trademark.

If I could do photoshop, I’d try it, but I’m not that good with a computer.

OK. But the regime here, still has a money trail since last year fomenting this. Maybe they gave the coyotes money, airplanes and railroads to do this. This IS NOT spontaneous.

No, it is not, and we already see the money trail leads to advertising that tells lies in major papers like La Prensa and even some ads on TV stations in Central America-border patrol found ads and handbills in the illegals’ stuff saying they could stay if they were a kid and let themselves get caught.

Coyotes operate illegally and in concert with narcos-both have perfectly good connections with planes and railroads to do all sorts of dirty business-even private planes-think guys like Pablo Escobar. Also, people pay these smugglers $5K and up to smuggle someone here by any means at all-and no luxury accommodations. Those ads and talk have speeded up something that has gone on for longer than anyone of any party wants to admit, because they are complicit by looking the other way.

I’m not blowing smoke-my family has lived in S and W Texas for a couple hundred years-I was born near the border and raised on a ranch, and this has gone on for all of my life-I’m a Texican/Hispanic, bilingual-watching the public interest commercials on Spanish-language TV channels is enlightening at times...

If this is the motel that some organization called The Baptist Children's Home, or something like that, had put up an offer to buy to house the illegals, I read that this organization decided NOT to go through with it. They received much negative push back from the pubic, and decided to cancel their offer.

EVERYONE: PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ON WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AT MURRIETA, CA. This is the answer to a previous FR post on the legitimacy of what had been reported as the truth. PASS THIS LINK ON: http://oathkeepers.org/ The article is dated 7-15-14 and is entitled, Murrieta Mutiny. Border Patrol “Will Not Obey Unlawful Orders” From Homeland Security And White House.

WE THE PEOPL DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. CONTINUE TO SHOW UP AND STOP BUSSES FROM UNLOADING ILLEGAL ALIENS INTO THIS COUNTRY. IT IS GOING TO BE UP TO US TO PUSH BACK.

I either heard the same, or read it somewhere. The Baptist Home cancelled their plans to buy the motel that would house the illegal aliens because they received MUCH PUSH BACK AND CRITICISM FROM THE PUBLIC.

A person can be judged by their actions. Kennedy’s actions were uniformly bad for the US.

People can also be judged by the company they keep. Ted Cruz & Louie Gohmert seem to think Glenn is doing the right thing and are accompanying him to the border. If they are with him, so am I.
